Saint Peter’s Bay and Port Ferdinand Yacht & Beach Club reopen October 14

Set on the stunning Platinum Coast of Barbados, Saint Peter’s Bay Luxury Resort & Residences and Port Ferdinand Luxury Resort & Residential Marina will be reopening to guests on October 14 offering spacious villa-style accommodations in idyllic beachfront locations—the perfect places to reconnect with family and friends, or work remotely after months of lockdown restrictions.

At a time when most travellers crave escapism and reconnection with loved ones, both resorts are replete with laid-back luxury providing a place and pace where guests can maximise their time outside away from computer screens, with their toes in the sand, and surrounded by the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea. 

Seclusion and space—Private Residences

Each of Port Ferdinand’s 46 villas provides true home from home comforts including state of the art kitchen and laundry room, luxurious master bedroom with beautiful marble and limestone ensuite, and spacious indoor/outdoor living room positioned to make the most of the beautiful views over the resort’s yacht marina, beaches and the Caribbean Sea.

Complementing its tranquil surroundings, the world class Sandbox Tree Spa provides a range of treatments and rituals to nourish both body and mind, while the 24 hours fitness centre, complimentary non-motorised watersports, and stellar concierge service to book island excursions mean guests can be as relaxed or energetic as they desire.

Dockside at 13˚/59˚, a stylish bistro that offers high quality meals utilising the freshest local ingredients, while just off property, the world-renowned luxury club, Nikki Beach is the place for great cocktails and a lively beach scene. There is also the relaxed Quarterdeck Bar and Pizzeria, or guests can opt for a private, in-villa chef creating personalised menus to suit every palate.


Just 1.8 miles away, is Port Ferdinand’s equally luxurious but more laid-back sister property, Saint Peter’s Bay with its complement of 57, three to five-bedroom villas, beautiful white sand beach and traditional Caribbean styling.

Once again, the emphasis is on space and all the comforts of home making this the perfect choice for a multi-generational holiday or extended families and groups of friends looking for sun, sea and sand right on their doorstep.

The wide range of kids activities—from turtle tours to kayaking—and the added bonus of a “Bikini Lift” in each building for easy access to and from the beach and pool, have made Saint Peter’s Bay a firm favourite with families.

“With the smallest of our stunning villas starting at 2580 square feet, ‘social distancing’ is in our DNA,” said Joerg Roterberg, Group General Manager at UNNA Luxury Resorts & Residences. “The concepts of space and seclusion have been part of our make-up from the beginning. We know they are especially important at this time when travellers want more room to move, to exhale and to truly relax. When they stay in one of our villas, they can really feel like they’re having a vacation,” he added. 

Stay at one, enjoy two

The fact that guests can stay at one of the resorts, but enjoy all of the amenities and facilities of the other, adds to the sense of freedom and space that has eluded travellers as they have waited for international restrictions to lift.

With a water taxi shuttle service between the two properties and a wide range of dining, fitness, beach and watersports activities to choose from, not to mention access to polo lessons and golf, there is no danger of feeling like you are in a “tropical lockdown”.

Barbados Welcome Stamp

In fact, once travellers have met the entry requirements and protocols for the island (available here), they become part of the island “bubble” and can freely explore all that Barbados has to offer—from the cosy rum shops and amazing restaurants, to the gorgeous beaches dotted along both coasts.

Applications are also being accepted for the 12 month Barbados Welcome Stamp scheme for visitors who wish to live and work remotely on the island for up to a year.

“This is a great opportunity for visitors to really experience island life,” Joerg said. “Our villas are the ideal home from home for remote workers and we would be delighted to speak with individuals and families looking for longer term accommodations to make this possible.”

With direct, daily flights from Gatwick and Heathrow on Virgin Atlantic and British Airways and currently no quarantine restrictions on passengers returning to the UK from Barbados, a stress-free Caribbean holiday is just one flight away.

Discounts of up to 45% are being extended as a special relaunch offer. For more information and bookings contact your preferred travel partner or UK representative, Victoria Cranmer at Paradise Promotions (
